Day 48. Chasing balls

In September 2012 on September 29, 2012 at 7:57 am

It’s the last Saturday in September and that means the Australian Football League Grand Final.

The telecast of beautiful young men chasing an oblong ball around an enormous grass field will steal the hearts and minds of many of our loved ones this weekend.

If you too love balls, you might like this clip, posted by the technology editor at Scientific American magazine. The machine depicted is constructed entirely from lego, took 600 hours to make and moves small toy balls around a 31-meter-long pathway. Why? It’s all to do with the Great Ball Contraption project, a community dedicated to “Lego Technic or Mindsorms creations that all have a single task in mind—moving balls around!”

C’arn Sydney Swans.
